While the majority of this is simply data compilation, the college essay is often the one document that can set you apart.

However, the essay is your chance to really showcase who you are and why you deserve a shot at the school you're applying for. This is true for all institutions, including HBCUs. The essay is crucial for these schools in regard to your why—why an HBCU instead of a PWI? Questions like these are ones you must consider to truly nail your essay.

Importance of an HBCU Kid's Line

Friday, January 11, 2019

Kid's clothing is a fun vein of apparel to design, from determining what types of garments to produce to what they'll look like. They're often cute and vibrant, speaking to your child's personality. Some children's apparel lines go beyond the purpose of cuteness. Collegiate clothing possesses another meaning—pride. You'll, of course, see kids repping their favorite professional sports teams' t-shirts, but when they're wearing a specific college's apparel, they likely know someone who goes or went there. This sense of pride is especially important for HBCUs, as they do not get the recognition and support of larger NCAA schools. An HBCU kid's line is crucial to continuing the educational legacy in our future generations.
